Tinubu’s Victory: I Can Live In Lome, Cotonou Or Ghana – Bode George Insists On Relocation




A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has insisted that he can live anywhere he wants to around the world with his green passport.

Naija News reports that the PDP chieftain insists that he can relocate to Nigeria’s West African neighbours like Ghana, Cotonou in Benin Republic and Lome in Togo if he isn’t satisfied with the incoming administration of the President-Elect, Bola Tinubu.

It would be recalled that George had earlier said he would go on political retirement should Tinubu emerge winner of the just concluded 2023 general election.

He has, however, insisted on his promise, saying he is not concerned about himself but bothered about young people.

George, who spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, asserted that President Muhammadu Buhari did not fulfil his promise to leave a legacy of free and fair elections.

Asked if he still had plans to move, the elder statesman said, “I didn’t hide my feelings: I said if this fellow (Tinubu) becomes the President, I will lose my interest politically.

“I have the right as a Nigerian to live anywhere I want. And I am saying it publicly that I am ready to retire from partisan politics. This is my own personally conviction that they don’t have the capacity, the ability to run this nation.

“I am not a young man anymore. If I am not satisfied with the way things are going, I have a right to go and stay anywhere I want to live for the rest of my life and play with my children and grandchildren.

“I haven’t committed any offence that can debar me. I can go to Lome to live. I can go to go Cotonou. I can go to Ghana. I can even go to Iceland. I can go to anywhere I want. With my green passport and my credibility and worthiness, I can live anywhere. I am just bothered about the younger generation.”
